Coneflowers bloom night and day,
sunshine and rain. To the bee,
butterfly, and moth they offer
odor, symmetry, and color.
Then, when ripe, the ravenous
goldfinches feast on the seeds.
They ask one thing: to do it
all again next year when
their scattered seeds sprout.
A plant I am not, but
God willing I can learn.
